St. Paul, MN (March 12, 2020) – Matsuura Machinery USA, Inc. announces partnership with The Open Door, a food shelf based in Eagan, MN.
“With so many families in our community facing hunger, we are partnering with The Open Door, a hunger relief organization dedicated to ending local hunger through access to healthy food,” said Brad Baker, Vice President of Finance & Administration.
The Open Door, through its collective programs, distributes over 1 million pounds of food annually, 70% of which is fresh and/or perishable. Clients may access healthy food choices through a fixed-site food pantry, multiple Mobile Pantry sites, the Mobile Lunch Box, and the Garden To Table program.
“The Open Door offers a fresh approach to ending local hunger through access to healthy foods by providing food support, family advocacy and community gardening to over 1,400 households per month,” Baker added.
“Our volunteers and staff work every day to make healthy food available where it is needed most in our community, “said Jason Viana, Executive Director of The Open Door. “Matsuura’s partnership in supporting our mission will help us continue to find ways to feed more of our neighbors.”
The Open Door is currently promoting a March campaign to help re-stock their shelves. The organization’s goal is to raise $100,000 and 100,000 pounds of food to support programs and fill shelves.
